The Supernova race continues

Since PokerStars started its VIP Club a few weeks ago, the talk of the online poker world has been the insane speed at which ElkY hit VIP Supernova status. Players watched ElkY as he barnstormed the tables and racked up an unlikely 100,000 VIP Player Points in just a couple of weeks.

Within another week, another name had emerged. Tibirin crushed the tables, crossed the Supernova threshold, and subsequently passed ElkY in VIP Player Points.

Now, lurking in the shadows is an online stalwart who many players will recognize from the $10/$20 NL tables. H@££INGGOL seems to be the next man on pace to hit Supernova. Straight out of Sweden, the young twenty-something is sports guy, with some prowess in hockey and soccer. A cash game specialist, H@££INGGOL could hit Supernova any time, given his current pace.

Last week, we had the pleasure of seeing ElkY and H@££INGGOL in the same place. Both players showed up in Copenhagen for the EPT Scandinavian Open.

With two Supernovas and H@££INGGOL on the way, I'm eager to see who will be next to step up to the plate. If you're close, feel free to shoot me an e-mail at blog @ pokerstars dot com.
